Increased interactions between R&I stakeholders in our societies require changes at research funding and performing organisations to accept inputs from citizens and organisations that used to be considered outsiders to the world of R&I. Co-Change inspires such changes by introducing new practices in the areas of research ethics, open access, citizen engagement, gender equality and science education.
2021. 10. 13. What Europeans think about science and technology? A new Eurobarometer survey on ‘European citizens' knowledge and attitudes towards science and technology' shows that 9 in 10 EU citizens (86%) think that the overall influence of science and technology is positive. They expect a range of technologies currently under development to have a positive effect on our way of life in the next 20 years.
2021. 10. 13. Changing the research and innovation system through democratic experimentation: a guide to good practices for RRI Want to improve research & innovation? Want to learn about how to do this through participatory experiments? The NewHoRRIzon Project released a guide to good practices with lessons & narratives on 4 years of experimentation with RRI in social labs across Europe.
2021. 10. 07. Multiple futures for society, research, and innovation in the European Union: jumping to 2038 This article contributes to the Responsible Research and Innovation literature in two ways: the authors consider how societal aspects are taken into account in research and innovation activities in four fundamentally different scenarios, as opposed to analysing current practices; and they put the emphasis on the political conditions of the interactions among the actors, as opposed to focussing on RRI principles and instruments.
- Responsible Innovation Summit The Responsible Innovation Summit showcases the leaders around the world influencing responsible digital transformation.

Various opportunities will be open for change-maker innovators to be inspired, learn and network. Central theme of the 2021 conference: How to make change happen?
- GRACE final webinars As the GRACE project comes to an end, project partners will share their findings and provide stakeholders with useful knowledge to implement RRI in research performing and funding organisations by organising a set of eight thematic webinars. From 26 October to 14 December, these webinars will each address a different topic related to GRACE, with the participation of experts inside and outside of the project.

In the co-change labs we will have the possibility to use our knowledge from various responsible research projects and other activities in order to support the R&I actors in their daily work by co-creating tailor-made responsible research related tools and practices. By doing so, we can learn from our work with the stakeholders and engage in change from bottom up scenarios.More about change labs
